gms evolution



GMS EVOLUTION has joined her sister vessel GMS Endeavour in the Port of Blyth to undergo mobilisation prior to heading out to the 1.2GW Hornsea Project One offshore wind farm. GMS Evolution arrived at the Port of Blyth onboard the OHT Albatross, the largest ever vessel to call at this UK east coast port. In April 2017, Orsted, the owner and developer of the Hornsea One wind farm, contracted Gulf Marine Services UK to provide two offshore accommodation vessels for technicians constructing the wind farm. Located some 120 kilometres off Yorkshire, the Hornsea Project One will comprise 174 Siemens 7MW wind turbines, three offshore substations and a reactive compensation station (RCS), scheduled for commissioning in 2020.

French floater achieves financial close

The French company EOLINK has achieved financial invest-ment decision for its innovative floating wind turbine. According to EOLINK the company raised one million euros in funding thanks to Finistère Angels and private investors. The patented concept replaces the classic turbine tower with several ‘arms’. To orientate itself into the wind, the whole structure revolves around its point of mooring. EOLINK states that the turbine is lighter and more rigid which reduces fabrication and installation costs and lowers LCOE. The design also allows for better distribution of the structural constraints and eliminates the problems of inherent vibration. It is anticipated that the EOLINK 1/10 scale prototype will be installed nearshore during 2018.

all turbines spinning at race bank

Full power output has been achieved at Orsted’s Race Bank offshore wind farm. Following the completion of a 240-hour acceptance tests of all 91 Siemens Gamesa SWT-6.0-154 turbines and a 200-hour test of the full park, the project is now operating at its full capacity of 573MW. Race Bank has also passed 1TWh of production since installation of the wind turbines began in May 2017. Each turbine stands at 177m tall and is equipped with a power mode which enables them to operate at 6.3MW. Sources at Orsted have stated that they look forward to officially opening the project in the summer. Last year, Orsted announced plans for a multimillion investment in Grimsby to create an Operations and Maintenance (O&M) hub to serve Race Bank as it enters operation.

triton knoll downsizes

Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm Ltd. (TKOWF) has applied to the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) for a non-material change (NMC) to the Development Consent Order (DCO) granted to the project in 2013. TKOWFL seeks to decrease the capacity from 1.2GW to 900 MW. This reduced capacity, together with improvements in technology, means that the number of V164-9.5MW turbines can be reduced to 90 and only two substations are required. The alteration to the DCO comes following the Government’s request to designate a nearby area for the protection of harbour porpoise. As a result BEIS is reviewing existing licenses and consents. TKOWF has made the NMC application to enable a more accurate review of the project. The changes will actually result in a reduction in the magnitude of the environmental impacts.

neia discusses opportunities in canada

The Newfoundland and Labrador Environmental Industry Association (NEIA) held a workshop yesterday encouraging local firms to consider offshore wind. Despite suitable conditions offshore wind has been slow to progress in Newfoundland and Labrador (NL). The province already meets its own energy requirements and is a net exporter of power. NEIA aim to highlight the economic potential of developing this industry and described the day as an encouraging start. It featured discussions with experts on possible export markets, current Federal supports and the opportunities for diversification of the oil and gas industry. Currently in the Canadian offshore wind concept queue is the 180MW St George’s Bay wind farm off the coast of NL. The project is set to feature 23 SWT-8.0-154 turbines with development led by Copenhagen Offshore Partners.

eolien simulates french fishing scenarios

The City of Manfredonia have announced that they oppose an application for a state concession for a proposed 165MW offshore wind farm. Trevi Energy SpA applied for the maritime state concession with the Port Authority of Manfredonia last November. The documents relating to the concession application are currently available for inspection and comment until the 6th of February 2018. The City of Manfredonia opposes the project on grounds that it will impact tourism and the local fishing industry. This is the latest of many offshore wind farm proposals along this stretch of coastline, which have suffered significant opposition. The Consiglio dei Ministri rejected previous proposals stating that the turbines would cause sig-nificant visual impact to the coastlines of Manfredonia, Zapponeta and Margherita di Savoia.

ocean city oppose offshore projects

Ocean City council has voted unanimously to oppose the construction of offshore wind turbines off the coast of Maryland stating that the proposed projects represent a ‘significant economic threat’ to tourism and property owners. US Wind is seeking to develop the 248MW Maryland project (with a possible expansion of up to 750MW) and Deepwater Wind plan to develop the 120MW Skipjack wind farm. Both projects have secured offshore wind renewable energy credits and are within 20-35km of the shoreline. The council stated that it supports clean energy and is asking that these projects be moved further offshore in order to reduce visual impacts. The approved Resolution ‘in opposition to permanent offshore wind turbines visible from Ocean City’ shall be sent to the Governor of Maryland and Congressional Representatives.

key players in chinese offshore wind merge

Two of China’s largest power producers have successfully received approval for a merger. The Beijing based energy company China Energy Investment Corporation Limited (CEIC) will absorb the Guodian Group. The merger received approval from the Board of CEIC on 5th January and the two companies now prepare to sign the merger agreement. The announcement was first made last year with approval from the State Council in August when the Shenhua Group was renamed CEIC and restructured as a parent company to absorb Guodian. Both companies are active in the offshore wind market; Guodian is the developer for several projects including the 252MW Zhejiang Zhoushan Putuo project due to be commissioned this year and CEIC is currently building the 300MW Jiangsu Dongtai wind farm.
